Battle for the AL East on the Line in Yanks-Orioles

The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles have established themselves as a pair of unlikely contenders in the AL East, and one squad will have sole possession of the division after Saturday’s contest in the Bronx. Sportsbooks opened the Yanks as heavy -170 faves with a total of 8.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Yankees are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games at home.
  • The Orioles are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games.
  • The Yankees are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games at home.

Ubaldo Jimenez and Michael Pineda will get the nod for the Orioles and Yankees, respectively. Jimenez (1-0, 5.95 ERA) has been wildly inconsistent this year, but the O’s are still getting the job done when he’s on the bump by winning all of his four starts.

Pineda (2-1, 3.86 ERA) served up two homers to the Pittsburgh Pirates in his last outing which led to an exit after five innings and a no-decision. The hurler has allowed at least one home run in each of his four starts on the year.

Both teams are exceeding early season expectations and have been getting the job done in all aspects of the game. The OVER is trending when the Yankees play at home, as New York has gone OVER the total in four of their last five contests in the Big Apple.
